MLB Ejection 069: Quinn Wolcott (1; Rob Leary)

HP Umpire Quinn Wolcott ejected Marlins Bench Coach Rob Leary for arguing a strike two call in the bottom of the 8th inning of the Braves-Marlins game. With two out and none on, Marlins batter Giancarlo Stanton took a 2-1 fastball from Braves pitcher David Carpenter for a called second strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the inner half of home plate and thigh high (px -.230, pz 1.835 / sz_bot 1.710) and that both called strikes during the at-bat were properly officiated, the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Braves were leading, 6-3. The Braves ultimately won the contest, 9-5.

This is Quinn Wolcott (81)'s first ejection of the 2014 MLB Regular Season.
Quinn Wolcott has 5 points in the UEFL Standings (0 Prev + 3 AAA + 2 Correct Call = 5).
